Super Mom

What is the most rewarding part of being a mom? I love watching those little lives I’m nurturing grow and evolve. Growing humans is hard! But if I’m being honest? I wish I could keep them little forever. Our time together is so short. My comfort is knowing that we’ll always be close, even after they’re on their own. I’d like to think we’ll all still hang out often, maybe on a beach somewhere.

What are your biggest challenges? My biggest challenge is making time for myself, but I suspect I’m not the only mom that feels that way.

How do you manage to balance your time with work, social, health and family obligations? Be willing to say no more often. We only have so much time and resources, so if there’s something in your life that’s not a) essential or b) fulfilling, cut it out. Be careful of adding anything to your plate unless you have something you’re willing to give up.

What advice do you have for other moms? Keep your eye on the things that really matter and forget the rest. We’re all in this life together, all imperfect, and we all are worthy of grace, so give that grace to others, too.

Is there anything else you’d like to add about why you are a super mom? While I’m flattered to be named a Super Mom, I think of it more as just being a normal mom, like all the other awesome moms out there who are trying to balance it all. Trust me, if you’re worried about if you’re being a Super Mom or not, you already are. You’re doing great. Keep it up. You are a hero to your kids just as you are right now.
